This is the second model in the suitcase range, and will give you maximum continual power of 900 watts. This also comes as standard with a parallel connection socket which would allow you to connect two or more parallel configured Kipor generators together. This feature would allow you to connect even miss-matched generators together, ideal for when “the ladies on holiday” want the extra power for hair driers or other high load devices that are only occasionally required. This feature is also ideal for automotive sport applications allowing you to power small compressors or pressure washers using machines which would normally be too small.
In typical caravan use this will be able to charge up your leisure battery your mobile phones and lap tops and most other tablet devices. It would also allow you to use travel kettles (put the tea on love!!) or travel irons (where’s my shirt!!) even at the most remote locations.
With this machine your caravan battery will charge in the same time as if connected to the hook up on site or at home, its the battery charger in you caravan that determines the recharge time, not the size of the generator. Also a quick tip, if you are looking to watch TV, use your leisure battery through the evening and re charge the battery in the day time. This way will be quieter during the evening hours and you will run the generator for fewer hours in the morning using less fuel and keeping the running hours low.
A full tank would normally last about 4 hours on a full load, but will typically run for 5 to 6 hours in normal use, the machine also comes with integral overload protection, so if you accidentally overload the machine it will automatically cut out, this ensures that you do accidentally damage any of the components but it is a fail-safe device and should not be relied on in day to day use. TAKE CARE and ensure you only connect loads suitable for this machine.
So as I said, this is the second machine in the digital range, it will not run microwaves, or large kettles. For this you would need to upgrade to the IG2000 or IG2600.
If you have a power-cut at home the IG 1000 would be suitable to back up your fridge and freezer and still have a little in reserve to provide some lighting as well. You need to make provision for how you would connect to your property in the event of a power cut. The recommended method is to have a manual transfer switch fitted by a registered electrician. In this way the house can be isolated from the National Grid during the power cut allowing the generator to be safely used. When the power is restored simply switch back to the national grid and turn off and store the generator.
If you are using this IG1000 on a boat, this will run your main lights and also charge your battery, it will not be suitable for larger powered items but it will be able to provide power to your Victron or Sterling inverter unit allowing them to charge your batteries at up to 50 amps. Care needs to be taken while charging batteries to make sure you do not take extra power through your ring main which could lead to overloading of this machine.
So overall our second machine seen by many people as the idea travelling companion in most caravanning or boating activities and an entry level support for home use during power failures.
